Five World Business Centre Tenants arraigned in court for faking rent receipts amounting to Ksh3.6 million in four years.

Amos Bundi Jacob, Jecinta Kanini, Prudential Bosibori, Pauline Wambua and Anthoney Kiongozi Mathenge are charged that on diverse dates between February 11, 2016, and November 11, 2019, jointly conspired to defraud Patrick Githinji Mwangi the landlord.

He is the owner of the famous business building by falsely pretending that they had paid rent.

The landlord, doubling to be the complainant, reported a forgery case of banking slips implied to be from Kenya Commercial Bank Tom Mboya branch by some of his tenants indicating to have paid shop rents.

“The conducted investigations completed when the complainant was requested to avail all the purported forged bank slips for authentication at the Kenya Commercial Bank branch,” the police report read in parts.

The complainant availed the slips, the bank verified that the documents were not genuine, revealing that the transaction reference numbers do not exist in the bank’s records and that the stamps used on the slips do not match.

The bank established that none was reflecting in the landlord's account.

The five were charged with six more counts of forging different bank slips dated between 2018 and 2019.

Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi granted them a bond of Ksh100,000.
